The Teacher

I have twenty years experience teaching across the globe in different specialisms; a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in English and ten years experience as a Yoga Teacher. I have a successful full-time career, sharing Vinyasa Flow, Dharma Yoga and Yin Yoga classes, workshops, festivals, worldwide retreats and yoga community. My yoga journey expanded spontaneously and rapidly, unfolding with so many enriching experiences, colourful travels, beautiful friendships and soul growth.

I have completed over a thousand hours of training with international tutors who have instilled inspiration and authenticity into my yoga practice and teaching. My extensive travels in India also allowed authentic insight into the history, tradition and practice of yoga.

As a writer and teacher of literature, I am innately inspired by language and art; therefore creative narrative, mythic story and poetry infuse my choreography. I offer an authentic sadhana space through precise use of Sanskrit language, yoga philosophy and traditional texts. These creative qualities are woven within precise alignment of classical asana. I offer yoga assists and adjustments throughout my classes to align and enhance postures, opening space for partner assists and play within the class.

It is a joy to share my knowledge and experience with you in this inspirational Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training.
